It was worth the effort, though.
Bet that will look stunning in person.

So it has arrived!

Very, very cold and condensation forming on it as soon as I brought it in. I let it warm through for half an hour and then tuned her up. Bam! Straight into tune, without any issues at all. The neck is just glorious, as is the set up. Slightly high, but I will leave it for a bit before messing with it. Intonation is spot on, no high spots anywhere on the frets that I can make out. A truly amazing guitar out of the box. Tonally the thing is immense. The pickups are the Memphis ones and are exactly spot on for my taste, articulate and very smooth. No harshness at all.
The finish is not what I expected to be honest. I was under the impression the '63 was a reissue only, but this has all the hardware tarrnished and the nitro deliberately flat as if aged. I was expecting a "new" version of an old guitar, but boy am I glad it is how it is. COA all there, case is not marked Gibson, which also surprised me, but it is a very well made (and heavy!) item.
First impressions, which are meant to the be the lasting ones, are just unbelievable. This is my first "New" Gibson, as both my previous purchases have been secondhand and I have not been dissapointed. Stunning!
